On Wednesday, Sept. 23, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Robert Redfield told the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee:
1. Face masks work to protect people from coronavirus; and
2. Face masks may work even better than an eventual vaccine.
My suggestion is that Gov. Parson make wearing a face mask in public mandatory everywhere for all people over 2 years of age in Missouri.
My question is:
Why does the governor continue to refuse to issue such an order?
